We had the good fortune of connecting with BeMyFiasco and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi BeMyFiasco, what do you attribute your success to?
I never stopped pushing and advocating for myself. That belief helped me find my tribe. Being a part of the Foreign Exchange music group gave me a newfound confidence. It helped put me in front of a new audience and allowed me to be fully embraced in a way that I had never experienced.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My work is honest and vulnerable. I create from the heart. I am most proud of myself for pushing past my insecurities and betting on myself. I have been doing music professionally for almost ten years and I wanted to give up many times, but I always had my faith and incredible people in my corner along the way. I learned that it really does take a team but nobody can believe in your vision more than you. You really have to want it and it requires a ton of sacrifice and trust in yourself. Authenticity always wins.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If you ever get a chance to visit my hometown, Dallas, TX, it’s actually amazing. Let’s start with the food. Ten Ramen for amazing bowls of goodness. Terry Blacks BBQ for some of the best ribs your mouth has ever tasted. Cake Bar is an amazing black-owned bakery with cake so moist, you’d have to check to see if your grandma was in the back.

I love a good pop-up or museum as well. Check out Klyde Warren for an open space experience for the whole family as well as the Dallas Museum of Art across the street. They used to do a monthly late night at the museum and it was definitely a mood.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to thank my parents for venturing on this amazing ride, my friends & family who supported me throughout and Phonte for helping nurture my gift.
